This is an elusive
early film from Alfonso Brescia [also known as Al Bradley]. Some critics
say 'it was made before Alfonso slipped into a routine of mind numbing
crap.' But frankly, Mr Brescia had a career that vacillated wildly between
quality and crap. He made some remarkably good thrillers [NUDE
GIRL FOUND DEAD IN THE PARK, MURDER
IN A BLUE LIGHT and, of course, this one], some entertaining erotica
TEEN] and some cult actioners [BATTLE
OF THE AMAZONS and AMAZONS
AGAINST THE SUPERMEN]. But he also helmed some of the worst SciFi
ever produced [SEVEN
GOLD MEN IN SPACE and the rest of the Space Odyssey films]
and horrible blaxploitation [MIAMI
COPS]. Mr Alfonso Brescia died from heart failure at age 71 in
June of 2001 after directing 60+ films.
Santis was just starting her career during at this time. By the mid '70s,
she had become an Italian sex queen after a string of numerous hit films
AND DEATH IN THE GARDEN OF THE GODS, DEVIL
IN THE BRAIN, HOT
LIPS OF THE EXECUTIONER, WATCH
OUT! COLLEGE GIRLS ARE COMING and Rino Di Silvestro's PROSTITUZIONE).
Unfortunately, the fame came to an abrupt end in 1979 when - during the
filming of Arrivano I Gatti (Here Come the Cats) - she experienced
severe spine damage after falling through a trapdoor. In the early eighties,
Ms De Santis began a new career in Italian radio where she continues working
